ACLU says it found problems with Georgia voter removal plan

November 4, 2019

ATLANTA (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia says there are discrepancies in the list of voter registrations the Georgia secretary of state’s office intends to cancel if the registrant doesn’t respond to a mailing.

The secretary of state’s office said last week that it plans to notify more than 313,000 people who’ve been in “inactive” status for more than three years, without voting or making other contact with election officials, before canceling their registration.

The ACLU says it found 70 people on that list who voted in November 2018. It’s asked state officials for more information on those people.

Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs said the list is online for people to review, and they encourage people to contact the office if they think data needs to be updated.
